Now make mount and roller spacers + large pvc tube down the center and you got stacking spin storage!! would work without spacers but would spin easier with.. Idk, must test out! Too bad like someone mentioned it takes 1/3 spool to print these out but they look super sturdy and will last forever.. I've spent more for junk boxes! A lot more..

may I ask how exactly you printed this? like what orientation? I want to print it but that bottom pin is making my slicer infuriatingly uncooperative with generating ample support material

360g for a set of 4 to fill one spool, that's over 35% of a 1Kg spool! I'll have an extra 2-3 empty spools just from printing drawers for my current spools! :D


This was great. However i did have to flip the print so it would print. But other than that it was great and had a nice fit

How did you flip it to avoid supports?

I just printed it bottom down. The supports are minimal and come off easily on my CR-10s.

I really like this, my only problem with it is that the pin on the bottom makes it need support, and I don't really want to orient it so the flat side without the peg is printed as the bottom.

I wonder if it would be better to have holes instead of pins, and either print pins separately or use something else.

Just my 2 cents, either way great design.

Hello, do you know if this is compatible with the amazon spool? Great design Thanks a lot!

This is fucking genius. This is amazing that you came up with this. OMG

Thank you! There are lots of spool drawers on Thingi. I just wanted one for Hatchbox spools specifically.

Great idea! Love recycling things!

Thank you! I appreciate that.

Perfect use for a 3D printer... :) Satisfyingly meta.

Haha! Thanks!

Awesome idea! You should consider updating the sides of drawer...make it look like an actual spool of filament.

Haha! Not a bad idea! Go for it!

Thank you! I was just using some other spool holder ideas from here. I just made it to fit these specific spools.
